Welcome to the Winter Solstice 2015
Today marks the shortest day, and the longest night of 2015, as the Sun reaches it’s most southern point, directly overhead the Tropic of Capricorn (happy birthday season, Caps!).
For those in the Northern Hemisphere, welcome to the Winter Solstice. Albeit the weather that’s been occurring on the East Coast lately, winter is here. This is our time of greatest darkness and chill. But don’t be fooled by that, because the Winter Solstice also marks the rebirth of all Light and Divine Feminine Energy in creation. We celebrate this in many major religions this time of year: Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanza. It's a time to celebrate the sparking magic of all of life and love. Your energy for positive change is abundant now. O' the places you will go in 2016!
Traits Amplified: Femininity, light, experience, consciousness, responsibility, abundance, love
Questions to Ask: What do I want from 2016? What kind of energy do I want to give people? Am I fulfilled in my personal life, professional life, healing and relationships? In what ways can I practice more gratitude? Am I on the right path, and if not, how can I make a change?
What to Go For: Change your energy, celebrate your Light! You may feel as if your most loving, inner essence is being re-born, re-seeded, and ready to sprout out into the world -- like a colorful tulip ready to burst. Five out of ten planets are in earth signs right now, meaning that whatever you currently set your mind to, you will achieve. Stay grounded. You can have anything you dream of — sink into the silence of the darkness and let your heart speak. What does it need? Take it easy, spend time with the ones who love you like no other. Stay positive, and nourished. Be free to express yourself, and whatever you do, do not judge yourself for it!
What to Watch Out For: Negative energies creeping back in. Let that shit GO under this dark night. Consciously choose to change your thought patterns — transmute something negative such as, “I’m exhausted” into something loving and positive such as, “I have worked so hard, and I am so proud of myself, I deserve to rest.” Whatever it may be, allow yourself the pleasure of experiencing your own positivity. Let your Light shine. Also be sure not to keep putting the blame on anyone else but yourself. Of course, don’t beat yourself down, but do be aware of the role that you play in the movie of life, and take responsibility for how it affects others. If you need to make a change, make a change. “Be like melting snow; Wash yourself of yourself.” —Rumi
